Fennel Potato Fry

Today in Priyas Virundhu, I am going to share another delectable, easy, flavourful and tasty potato dish – Fennel Potato Fry. Actually I saw a chef making scallops with fennel and pepper powder, so I thought why not try it with potatoes. This fry tasted awesome and I strongly recommend you all to try this easy Fennel Potato Fry.

Here’s how to make Fennel Potato Fry with step by step photos…


3 [big]
1 finely chopped
5 cloves [finely chopped]
Turmeric powder
¼ tsp
Mustard seeds
½ tsp
Cumin seeds
1 tsp
Curry leaves
1 tbsp

For Grinding

Dry red chillies
Fennel seeds
1 tbsp
Black pepper corns
2 tsp
Cumin seeds
2 tsp
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4-5


Grind the ingredients mentioned in the table “under grinding” to a fine powder and keep it aside for later.

Wash, peel and cut the potatoes to small cubes as shown in the photo.

Heat oil in a kadai, splutter mustard seeds then add cumin seeds and curry leaves and fry for about 30 to 40 secs.

Add the chopped onions, garlic and fry well until it turns to golden brown colour.

Now add the potatoes, salt and fry about 3-5 minutes.

Add the ground powder to the potatoes and mix well, until the masala coats on all the potato pieces.

Add the turmeric powder and sprinkle about ¼ cup of water. Mix well, cover and cook the potatoes until done.

Delicious, flavourful and yummy Fennel Potato Fry is ready to be enjoyed.
